The London Gazette

In the will of an ancestor of mine thousands of pounds were shared between his children, but; his eldest son was left one shilling. This seemed a bit strange to me. I searched the London Gazette for the year the will was made and found his eldest son in debtors prison as a bankrupt. I looked up some Buntings around the same period and found the following interesting records. The London Gazette archive can be searched.

I WILLIAM BUNTING, at present, and for three years last past, residing at Newport Pagnell, in the couuty of Buckinghamshire and being a butcher, do hereby give notice, that I intend to present a Petition to the Court of Bankruptcy, in, the city of London, praying to be examined touching my debts, estate, and effects, and to be protected from all process upon making a full disclosure and surrender of such estate and effects, for payment of my just and lawful debts; and I hereby further give notice, that the time, when the matter of the said Petition shall he heard, is to be advertized in the London Gazette and in the Northampton Mercury Newspaper, one month at the least after the date hereof; As witness my hand, this 8th day of March, 1844- The
